2023 predictions for Aries (21 March – 19 April)
As much as you’ve been told to stick to the path and avoid veering off if you wish to succeed, the first quarter of 2023 will present several opportunities for branching off. Try not to resist these opportunities, as they could be offering you some additional revenue streams! The advice is to go with the flow.
Success in work seems to be the focus for 2023. You’ll be working quickly to achieve your goals in the second quarter. In the process, you may find yourself working hard at making yourself heard in order to get where you’d like to be. Try to pace yourself though – too much work and not enough play will leave you unhappy.
You may want to help finance or mentor someone you care about to pursue an opportunity in the third quarter. It could be a relative or just someone you see your young self in – after all, once upon time, you could have used a well-wisher to help get started.
The end of the year casts the spotlight on you and your wellbeing. Seeking help in the form of a counsellor or life coach may be beneficial in finding your inner joy again.
2023 predictions for Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
The New Year starts with some good news. An opportunity bears fruit. There is success and things come full circle for you. Your difficult times will be a thing of the past while you bask in your success.
There is healing or a rebuilding of yourself in the second quarter. You’ll find you have nothing to worry about as you’ll have a circle of support around you to get you through this time. Life’s curveballs aren’t necessarily a bad thing in the third quarter. There will be let-down and disappointment but it will also be a time to learn how to take control of your emotions and a moment of self-realisation and awareness.
There’s a chance of romance at the end of the year for the singles – and it seems to start with a friendly introduction rather than a digital connection. Good luck!
2023 predictions for Gemini (21 May – 20 June)
Decisions and planning will fill the start of the year. You have choices and it’s best that you go with the tried and tested methods. Things will be moving along just fine. Try not to get overly excited at the announcement of a new material opportunity. This may be a new job, business or investment. An even temperament will be helpful during this time, especially when you realise the opportunity wasn’t exactly what you had in mind.
But there is a silver lining in every experience. Even though the opportunity will not present the learning situations you were looking for, there will be things you will be meant to learn during this time. So keep the optimism and just plod on.
You might be able to turn the situation around to be in your favour towards the end of the year. You have the chance to rebuild yourself up from ground zero or lay a good foundation if you like. Everything will come full circle by year’s end and it will become clear why things have happened the way they have.
2023 predictions for Cancer (21 June – 22 July)
There’s a lot of work to be done for yourself for 2023. Working through your skeletons in the closet and also learning to trust yourself and your intuition are key areas. Cancer is an emotional sign and tends to get quite deep with emotions. It’s a good start to begin to address the root causes of your low feelings. It won’t be a smooth journey to healing but you will take the first step towards working on yourself in the first quarter.
The next step will be addressing or discovering what your core beliefs are. Being true to yourself will be the core of your healing process this year. There will be some very important decisions to make in the third quarter, which will require your intuition. Logic and overthinking will make things hard, so avoid that. These important decisions will have an effect on your long-term, so take your time with them. The various options may confuse you, but be clear about the outcome you would like to have and stick to it.
2023 predictions for Leo (23 July – 22 August)
There is let down and disappointment about the failure of a project coming to completion. This leaves you no other choice but to start all over again. You’ll feel regret that you have spent your money and emotion and it has amounted to nothing. Don’t let worry and sleepless nights consume you. Instead, use your own initiative to work on a Plan B.
You can make your own wishes come true as a change of luck comes around in the third quarter. The key this time is to change your perspective. Working with the same mindset will lead to the same results. Even emotions, courage and determination will be your ingredients to see a successful end to 2023.
2023 predictions for Virgo (23 August – 22 September)
Enjoy your success at the beginning of the year. You have worked hard and your efforts will be bearing fruit. Don’t forget to treat yourself too!
Being Virgo, you like everything in its place at the right time. In the second quarter, expect this to be stirred up. Loss of power and helplessness will set in. But, through this, you will discover what you stand for and what you believe in. Whatever came before this time will feel like a façade – you were going through life for the sake of it.
It’s time to revisit the drawing board in the third quarter. Things have become clear now about what to do about your future. Take this time to plan and channel your strengths and weaknesses in the best possible way to achieve your goals.
After feeling like you’ve lost all control of things in your life, you begin to gain control of your emotions again in the last quarter. It’s going to be a rollercoaster journey, where you feel you’ve got it at times and at times you haven’t. Don’t give up on mastering your emotions! You’ll get there eventually.
2023 predictions for Libra (23 September – 22 October)
Your focus this year will be on your goals and wealth building. Things will be a bit worrisome in the first quarter around your finances. Not so much on being short of it but being worried about the completion of a project or business deal or investment.
To make up for the uncertainty in the first quarter, you begin to look further afield at how you can expand your revenue streams. It’s going to be a busy quarter while you juggle multiple roles to make this happen.
Your action plan bears fruit in the third quarter and everything in life is beautiful again. Moving forward towards the end of the year, you become aware of the importance of living your life with intent by listening to your instincts and heart and trying to replicate the success of your recent past.
2023 predictions for Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)
The year ahead is all about seeking greater fulfilment in your life and changing the aspects of your life that you’re unhappy about. You need to make a decision that may have long-term repercussions for yourself as well as others. Be realistic and choose the path that gives you the most fulfilment.
There will be multiple roles to juggle in the second quarter. Be patient and find the middle path to achieve balance within yourself.
There will be a strong commitment around perfecting the finer details of your life in the second half of the year, and fixing the circumstances that have made you unhappy. It’s time to turn inwards and channel your energies towards what you want to see happen in your life. You may feel like you’re at the end of your tether at times, but keep on following your heart to see yourself through this journey of creating the perfect setting for your life.
2023 predictions for Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)
Things may not be what they seem at the start of the year. Your task will be to seek the truth about the situation before you. And the best way in this instance would be to turn inwards and trust your intuition.
The second quarter presents the right time for success in collaboration and also with the completion of plans you’ve started at the beginning of 2023.
The third quarter is about blending all talents and opinions to create what you want. Meaningful relationships that align with your purpose will be made. In order to make a success of your endeavours this year, you may need to embark on projects or pick up new skills or further your studies, and let go of practices and alliances that don’t serve you anymore. You will have to trust your intuition on this.
2023 predictions for Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)
This year, you will be considering your long-term options. Should you take the safe option or take some risks? Being bold in your undertakings seems to be the way forward. You may end up feeling like you have bitten off more than you can chew but in time you will see the benefits of your choice.
Raw honesty with yourself and understanding your values and beliefs and aligning them with what you do for work will be very important to you. The goal is to translate your vision into something tangible, practical and also lucrative. Through the options that you will be presented this year, you will rediscover a sense of meaning, inspiration and purpose to your life.
The good news is that by the end of the year your plans to see your vision to fruition will be well underway. New projects will have been started, alliances in alignment with your vision will have been formed and opportunities will unfold!
2023 predictions for Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)
The year ahead seems to be very focused on accumulating wealth. It will kick-start with a new job or venture. This is also an opportunity to master a new skill to expand your abilities. It will be a stressful first quarter while you invest in yourself to become more marketable. Opportunities seem to pop out of the woodwork even in times of uncertainty for you – so grab them while they show up.
It’s been tough financially these past couple of years and you find yourself juggling multiple roles to make up for past losses. This will be one of your most successful years when it comes to your career and finances. Your victories will inspire you to get creative and seek other revenue streams. Life becomes a little more comfortable and the lack of stress around your commitments frees you up to listen and trust your intuition when deciding on your next moves.
2023 predictions for Pisces (19 February – 20 March)
Something is amiss – you feel it in your gut. So this is the year to change that feeling to being emotionally fulfilled and keeping yourself open to all possibilities. The wheels of change will happen in the second quarter. All for the good. The focus is on rebuilding yourself in the way where you are being true to yourself.
The third quarter will be rife with challenges and obstacles. This may come about because of the visibility you have gained as a result of your successes. It’s a sad nature of life that people feel threatened by someone’s success and try to bring you down. This time may cloud your judgement, perhaps even plant the seed of self-doubt. But trust your heart and draw upon your self-confidence and self-belief to guide you.
Despite things becoming quite uncertain towards the end of the year, you know that a methodical and well-thought-out plan will lead to success. Remember to stick to tried ways of doing things and avoid taking any further risks.
